GLH welcomes former Flint Journal reporter Patrick Hayes

Posted: October 5, 2010 by Jared Field in College, High School

Starting this basketball season, GLH will be home to the former basketball writer extraordinaire from the Flint Journal, Patrick Hayes. The former city series beat reporter spent one season covering Mott Community College and was the online content director for sports at the Journal. He is a graduate of Oakland University and is finishing up his master’s degree at Michigan State. He has covered basketball at every level, including the Detroit Pistons and MSU Spartans.

Hayes actually took over Mlive’s Hotbed Hoops from yours truly when I left the old fishwrap. Hayes will cover high school and JUCO basketball for GLH.

We’re looking forward to an exciting season in 2010-11 with some of the state’s top talent within a 10-mile radius of downtown Flint — Flint Beecher, Northwestern, Northern, Grand Blanc, Powers and Carman-Ainsworth.  Saginaw’s big two are always a force and Lansing basketball looks to be better than it’s been in more than a decade.

Oh, and we have arguably the top college basketball team in the country in East Lansing.

Happy hoops.

    I wrote that, not Patrick. And it wasn’t referencing the best teams, but the teams with the top talent.
